    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) -The United States seeks a predictable and stable relationship with Russia and will pursue that goal during the future Biden-Putin summit, White House spokesperson Jen Psaki said during a briefing on Wednesday.

    "Our objective as the United States is to have a predictable relationship with Russia, to stabilize that relationship and certainly having a discussion, having a summit would be an opportunity to discuss areas where we agree and can work together whether it is continuation of non-proliferation efforts, obviously they [Russia] are partnering in P5+ [1] and those could be part of the forum for our discussion," Psaki said.

    On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his US counterpart Joe Biden held a telephone conversation. The two presidents discussed strategic stability, Russia's alleged 'cyber intrusions' and meddling in US election, as well as America's "unwavering commitment" to Ukraine.
